Nearly 1,300 years ago, Vikings used long pieces of silver and gold wire to weave ropes. These woven wire ropes were then stretched and made into jewellery for powerful Viking leaders. This wire weaving is called Viking knit (or trichinopoly chain).
This bracelet is made from copper wire. The Viking knit chain is finished with 2 handmade wire caps and a handmade hook clasp, with Amethyst stones. The bracelet measures 7 1/2” long, with a 6 3/4” inside circumference.
I have oxidised this bracelet, highlighting the detail.
This item comes in a jewellery box.
